MDSR awards (Including the Roessler, Banes, Bennett, and Watts Research Scholarships) are available to medical students for original research performed under the guidance of the faculty of the College of Medicine. The goal is to engage medical students in biomedical discovery and scholarly inquiry and to encourage students to consider a future academic career in biomedical research. Please note each faculty member may only mentor two medical students through the MDSR program during each given funding period. Direct any application questions to Research.Education@osumc.edu

*Please note MDSR awards only fund original hypothesis driven research projects; systemic reviews, literature reviews, case reports, and non-hypothesis driven research projects do not qualify for MDSR funding.
